Mystery Christopher Nolan Film Sets 2017 Release


Christopher Nolan's next movie will hit theaters in 2017.

Warner Bros. Pictures has set Christopher Nolan’s next film for release on July 21, 2017 

Although the film itself is, at the moment, a complete mystery, Warner Bros. Pictures has set Christopher Nolan’s next movie for release on Friday, July 21, 2017. That date has the mystery project arriving just one week after 20th Century Fox’s War of the Planet of the Apes and just one week before Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures’ new Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man film, set to star Tom Holland as the friendly neighborhood web-slinger.

Christopher Nolan has been working with Warner Bros. since 2002 when he directed Insomnia, a remake of Erik Skjoldbjærg’s 1997 Swedish crime thriller, starring Al Pacino, Hilary Swank and the late Robin Williams. He also famously helmed the studio’s Dark Knight trilogy (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises) as well as three original features: The Prestige, Inception and, most recently, Interstellar (a co-production with Paramount Pictures).

Post-Interstellar, Christopher Nolan released the documentary short Quay, which is currently touring the country as part of a Quay Brothers retrospective. You can check out’s recent interview with the legendary brothers Quay right here.

Also scheduled for the July 21, 2017 date are Universal Pictures’ sequel Pitch Perfect 3 and Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne and Clive Owen.

Set for release in July of 2017 as well is directors’ Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Starring Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Javier Bardem, Kevin R. McNally, Stephen Graham, Golshifteh Farahani, Kaya Scodelario, Brenton Thwaites and recently revealed to feature the return of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, the franchise entry hits the big screen July 7, 2017.

Directed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves, War of the Planet of the Apes follows on July 14 with Spider-Man, helmed by Cop Car‘s Jon Watts, arriving July 28. Peter Parker will appear in the MCU before that, however, as Holland is expected to appears as Spidey in next summer’s Captain America: Civil War.
